Comment from TMS…
On the matter of the "market adjusted price" of a Prius c in Florida, we offer this comment direct from TMS:

"While Toyota Motor Sales does not advocate mark ups beyond the MSRP, the dealers are independent business operations and though we advise against raising prices beyond suggested retail, ultimately the final price is determined in the negotiations between a dealer and the customer."

Speaking of market adjustment, is the Volt taking off (if you believe rumors)?
